Screener Recognition

 The BIA Pro Bono Project could not function without its committed team of screening attorneys.  Screeners are experts in immigration law who volunteer their time with the Project to review cases at the BIA once per week.  They create the redacted summaries of the cases that are circulated to Project participants each week.  We thank them for their time and dedication.
